A Guide to Philosophy Resources: Articles & Databases

This is a general guide for finding resources in Philosophy.

What are Databases?

Research tools that help you find articles in journals, magazines, or newspapers, or other information sources like books, videos, and maps.

Some focus on a kind of source (like newspaper articles); most of ours focus on scholarly research in a specific academic field.

Find It

For databases direct access to an article may be available by clicking on the "Find it" button (see example below).

  • Lists full-text options
  • Tells you if we own it in print
  • Allows you to borrow it if we don't (Interlibrary Loan)


In the Discovery search an "Access Online" button instead of the "Find it" button takes you to the full-text of an article.
